asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations whether it is the intention of the United Kingdom Government to mark the occasion of Sierra Leone's independence by a gift.
§ Mr. Sandys
Yes. We are making a presentation of table silver bearing the Sierra Leone coat of arms, which could be used on formal State occasions. Arrangements have been made for the silver to be on display in the Upper Waiting Hall from 11th to 14th April. I will see that photographs of it are placed in the Library in due course. The silver will be presented to the Sierra Leone Government at the Independence celebrations.
